    Definition of a Taverna – Tαβέρνα:

    Taverna refers to a small restaurant serving Greek cuisine, not to be confused with ‘tavern’. The Greek word ‘taverna’ originates from the Latin word taberna (‘shed’ or ‘hut’ from tabula ‘board’ coming from beam or timber). As Greeks have migrated throughout the world, taverns (pl) have spread throughout with them. The tavern is an integral part of Greek cuisine and Greek culture.  Great food, wine, music, and dance are all highlights of a ‘taverna atmosphere’. THE MORE THE MERRIER!!
